      About "Sacrifice"

      Lyrics for The Roots - "Sacrifice"

      Listen, I got you phobic offa this like arachnids
      Drastic, it ain't plastic, it's just pro blackness
      Grown man tactics no pediatrics
      The kind of track that make the comeback miraculous
      The catalyst. Thought with the knack of splashin'
      I'm dashin', I mastered the craft of mashin'
      The level-headed thoroughbred the females passion
      Magnetic attraction be keeping em askin'

      The crews in the Cadillac, the Pendergrassin'
      Swerve half-naked won't come near crashin'
      But if I go to Heaven would ya'll know my name
      Or would it be the same for you like I was Eric Clapton, huh?
      Clap for your freedom dog, that's what's happenin'
      My spit take critical political action
      The hustle is a puzzle, each piece is a fraction
      And every word that's understood is a transaction
      I'm an S.P. soldier, microphone holder
      Rep Philly set
      From Bolivia to Boulder
      Paris, France to Tip and Thai Yoga
      How we gon' make it through the dark?
      I'll show ya.

      Tell you one lesson I've learned
      If you want to reach something in life
      You ain't gonna get it unless
      You give a little bit of sacrifice
      Ooh sometimes before you smile you got to cry
      You need a heart that's filled with music
      If you use it you can fly
      Listen,
      If you want to be high

      Yo kick off ya shoes, jump off the jock
      I fly higher than them dudes from off ya block
      My name Black, the style is unorthodox
      It tap chins wit ya men's who you thought could box
      A couple people wanted thought to stop
      But guess what?
      My man grab the missile, plug for the gut
      Now next time greedy stop being such a glut
      I'm precise with it like Faheim with haircuts
      We up close on 'em with toast but no crust
      It's fructose on 'em they froze and won't bust
      Choke on your face you jewels is lackluster
      Gotta put it to ya straight
      Y'all fools is jacked up
      Came close to the utmost but no cogar
      Nose to the grindstone, head to the stars
      The number one runner with the number one drummer
      Grammy award-winning it's the world's eighth wonder
      Come on!

      Tell you one lesson I've learned
      If you want to reach something in life
      You ain't gonna get it unless
      You give a little bit of sacrifice
      Ooh sometimes before you smile you got to cry
      You need a heart that's filled with music
      If you use it you can fly
      If you want to be high

      Yo, your first impression might be I'm a asshole
      Or say I'm sometimey and give people a hassle
      Or try to suntouch and put the heat in a capsule
      Dog I'm far deeper than that though,
      I get in the zone, recognize I'm a rolling stone
      No time to lollygag or lounge with scallywags
      Gimme the disc or I'll put it where your body at
      Old school spit flow laid over Trotter tracks
      With no apology, fraud or tricknology
      Just trust what I see and I say and follow me
      My way, I be the open book, look inside me
      The star of the story that the grooveteller guide me
      Through all the dark times part of the business
      The light be contingent on small forensics
      My microphone'll make a man a newborn infant
      It's true so the true gon' sense it
      I get in the zone

      Tell you one lesson I've learned
      If you want to reach something in life
      You ain't gonna get it unless
      You give a little bit of sacrifice
      Ooh sometimes before you smile you got to cry
      You need a heart that's filled with music
      If you use it you can fly
      If you want to be high
      Tell you one lesson I've learned
      If you want to reach something in life
      You ain't gonna get it unless
      You give a little bit of sacrifice
      Ooh sometimes before you smile you got to cry
      You need a heart that's filled with music
      If you use it you can fly
      If you want to be high
      Tell you one lesson I've learned
      If you want to reach something in life
      You ain't gonna get it unless
      You give a little bit of sacrifice
      Ooh sometimes before you smile you got to cry
      You need a heart that's filled with music
      If you use it you can fly
      If you want to be high
